Yes, You Can Eat This Common Weed! – Purslane (BEWARE of SPURGE)

In this video we focus on one of the most common garden weeds we seem to have in our area, the common purslane.

While we often treat purslane as a weed, not only is purslane edible, but it is delicious, and purslane is considered a superfood.

Throughout the video, we talk about how purslane grows, the health benefits of purslane, how to recognize purslane (we show you a picture of purslane flowers), how to avoid prostrate spurge (we talk about purslane vs spurge), how purslane tastes, and how to prepare purslane.

There is a lot to say about this edible weed that is so common in the garden, and we hope you enjoy this video and perhaps consider eating purslane from your garden.

Thank you so much for watching!

DISCLAIMER: Please be careful when eating plants that you aren’t sure the identity of. Remember, spurge has some common characteristics but is not the same as purslane and it will make you sick. Our rule of thumb is: If you can’t identify the plant you are about to eat, don’t eat it. Ask someone for assistance who can help you identify it first.
